Each Spring I feel a new burst of energy as the days grow longer and new growth appears on trees and in the gardens. The garlic I planted last October is already 6-7" tall, and the greenhouse is full of peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, broccoli, basil and lavendar starts for our local farmers' market that opens on May 13 at Dexter Lake. We have a raised bed in the greenhouse where lettuce, carrots, arugula, beets, spinach, and onions have made their appearance. My knitting slows down as the greenhouse calls me each day to water and transplant the seedlings into bigger pots. Soon the Rhododendrons and Azaleas will be in bloom and the landscape will be a riot of color, with 100+ year old Fir trees as the backdrop. Although I appreciate the break from gardening that Winter provides, I always look forward to this time of year.

- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a soap maker and musician. I can be found at our local Dexter Lake Farmer's and Crafter's Market on Sundays from May thru October selling my knitting patterns and hand knit items, as well as hand crafted soap, macro-photography from the garden, and tomato and pepper starts for your garden. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band The Pears can be found on Reverbnation.
